- European Union Private International Law in Contract and Tortaf Joseph Lookofsky, Ketilbjørn Hertz
Published in association with JURIS PUBLISHING, Inc., New YorkOrders from outside Scandinavia, please contact www.jurispub.comExperienced practitioners in Europe realise the increasing commercial significance of the discipline known as Private International Law (Conflict of Laws).As indicated by this title, the focus of this book is on the Private International Law rules applied by courts and arbitral tribunals in the European Union, but by including numerous concrete examples, the authors emphasise the interdisciplinary nature of the subject and thus the many relevant 'connections' between private international law and substantive commercial law, especially as regards contractual and delictual matters (e.g.) in cases concerning contracts for the international sale of goods, cross-border claims relating to product liability, etc.Linda Silberman, Martin Lipton Professor of Law, New York University School of Law, says:"This wonderfully compact book is a 'must' for students and practitioners interested in private international law. It brings together principles of jurisdiction, choice of law, and recognition of judgments and shows the interrelationship of the rules and their effect on cases in the European Union. For those in Europe, it offers a complete and systematic overview of material that everyone interested in transnational litigation must know. For those in the United States, it provides one of the first comprehensive and accessible accounts of the European private international law system that lawyers in the United States are encountering more and more in their own cases. Rich in information and well-organized in structure, this book ...is a gem.""The authors have written an educational and readable introduction to EU's international trading law and the global laws on international commercial arbitration"- Peter Arnt Nielsen in the Danish law journal Ugeskrift for Retsvæsen 2009 BJoseph Lookofsky is Professor of Law at the University of Copenhagen.
